Self healing allows us to get free of our past, overcome negative thought patterns, feelings, habits and outcomes and to have more peace and ease.
If we are interested in reaching our potential, it’s an essential step towards creating authentic and lasting change.
1. HEALING IS UNCOMFORTABLE, LIBERATING AND INTEGRATING IT TAKES WORK
When we embrace healing, we make a decision to embrace new perspectives, extract the wisdom from our past and create a new biology with which to proceed fowards.
Processing past trauma and allowing present situtations to guide our growth are important aspects here. To truly heal, you must embrace pain, witness it, learn what it has to teach you and then let it go.
When we do this, the negative beliefs associated with the pain can be reframed and released along with the emotion. If we don’t release these, we will continue to attract more pain and endless suffering. Suffering comes when we resist pain and then lock it into our body as a result.
Freeing the body is an important as our past is embedded in our cells until we do the work of releasing it. Once we clear the old and create new space, we can fill it with our truth and new perspectives and frequencies. We can start to align with our inner being and what our soul knows that is timeless and powerful.
2. RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS
There is a sense that comes when it’s our time. A tingling, a knowing, a feeling of being guided, an opening and ususally some strange ‘co-incidences’ like stumbling across people you haven’t seen in a while who recommend someone or other signs.
Far from feeling overwhelmed, we may experience sensations of hope, lightness, things being different and a gentle kind of push forward which is in direct opposition to what we have been carrying.
If any of these things are happening for you, you are ready. We can choose to seek healing at any time. If we keep getting pulled back into confusion, chaos and old habits, it’s really showing you the contrast. Follow your awareness!
3. CHOOSE YOUR FUTURE AND LIFE WILL CONSPIRE TO SUPPORT YOU
When you choose for your highest good, life will meet you there. You will find just the perfect lesson at the right time, the painful clearing out of someone that was holding you back (which we may resist initially) that new person or opportunity you were looking for, or the right tool, book or podcast flowing into your experience effortlessly.
At first this feels odd and joyful and then we probably doubt it, but if we keep asking and allowing, pretty soon it becomes our new normal. There is a time when bigger stuff will show up and we may become lost or overwhelmed, but if we keep trusting, asking for guidance and committing to our progress, we will get through and become stronger for it.
4. HEALING IS WEIRD UNTIL YOU ARE USED TO IT
What absolutely no one is talking about is how it feels to get lighter, freer and to watch your problems leave. It is a truly strange sensation to get back to who we were before past events (whilst retaining the wisdom we have gained in the processing of them).
It can seem quite surreal. We are all familiar with another problem and another burden, undoing and freeing our burdens can leave us with spaciousness and ease that is unfamiliar. It’s into that space we can put new patterns, habits, choices, thoughts, feelings and emotions.
5. THE BIGGER THE PAIN THE BIGGER YOUR PURPOSE
The bigger your challenges you have been endured, the more joy you will experience in getting free and the more insight and awareness you begin to accumulate as you do the work to integrate your wounds into wisdom.
When starting out it can be a huge leap of faith, but as you become less burdened and re connect with your inner essence and presence, the way forward can reveal itself bit by bit in a glorious way.
